for john boehner, i think boehner was exactly right, his instincts were let's get a big deal, the problem is he couldn't sell it to his caucus dominated by tea party who consider themselves patriots, but this -- >> six months ago you heard bill talking about it with stuart varney, said we shouldn't be raising taxes in a down economy. andrea. >> he's absolutely right. these crazy tea partiers that bob loves to blast every chance he gets have the same position that president obama essentially had in 2006 when he said we shouldn't vote to raise the debt ceiling and if we did it would be irresponsible so the president, big political issues on the line but i agree with bob in one respect, john boehner has real trouble within his conference. there are members of the gop caucus that have come out and said we're not voting for any kind of deal as long as it includes raising the debt ceiling so boehner does have to work with democrats. big challenges on both sides. heather: democrats bob certainly have a problem, a lot of them are saying no cuts to social security, no cuts to medicare, no cuts to
ingle downtown in new york. gregg: there's a big battle going on over spending, it actually shut down the state of minnesota. lawmakers failing to meet a budget agreement for the midnight deadline last night. so the government is closing up shop. both sides, still at odds over how to eliminate a $5 billion state decifit. >> the democrats and republicans need to stop acting like crips and bloods, gang members. >> i just don't understand how when you shut down a government and we shut down all of these jobs that are going to be lost right now, how are you going to increase and solve a budget crisis when you're not employing people? how are you going to solve that problem? it doesn't make logical sense. >> you never know how long it's going to be so i don't know want my plants to die. they told us to do that, get ready. >> stu join us, democratic governor, republican legislature, you can see this one coming down the pike. i wonder how it's going to end and who will get the blame. >> that's the question, who gets the blame but you're right, this is a standoff taking place across the count
finally came out publicly with a bipartisan, big, tough plan, a framework for how to deal with our very real challenge with our record deficits and debt. it's my hope that the senate will consider cut, cap and be balance, defeat it and then put a responsible plan on the floor, one that shares the sacrifice across all the areas of our budget and that puts forward the kind of framework that everyone can support. bill: okay. on the cut, cap and balance, so you agree with harry reid that this is a waste of time on a balanced budget. why would a balanced budget amendment when polls show 72% of those surveyed favor it, why would you be opposed to that, senator? >> i don't speak for leader reid, obviously, but what i think the leader was suggesting was that with ten days left until we default on america's mortgage, we should be focusing on things that have a very real chance of passage in both houses and that can avoid the catastrophic consequences of defaulting on america's debt. i think leader reid and many of us in the senate are concerned that if we simply keep ping-ponging back and forth
. bill: he says you can take care of the debt ceiling one vote. but that leaves a big problem and that's the debt. >> it's the debt itself. i couldn't agree more. the crisis comes, bill, not if we don't pass the debt ceiling, but if we do pass a debt ceiling it send a signal to the financial markets around the world that the united states is not capable of dealing with this enormous debt. that's the crisis. if we don't get a credible plan that brings the deficit spending down over the next two years and the president has been holding out on that. bill: do you think the markets will be spooked by that? >> you are exactly right. even as moody's and s & p said they will downgrade the debt. you would expect for the interest rate on those bonds to go up but the last couple weeks they have gone down. we cast a carte blanche $2.5 trillion increase in the debt i believe that could cause a financial panic. bill: that forces the markets to quiver. >> this is the ultimate point of leverage. that's why there has been a stalemate. republicans said if we cave on this we'll never get serious about sp
point. that's not a big deal. a lot of that is tied to greece and not what's happening in washington, is it not? >> reporter: let's put this into perspective. broadly speaking you could say the following. if there is no deal on this debt problem by that deadline in early august, if there is no deal you will probably see the stock market retreat big time. if surprise surprise there is a deal, and the debt ceiling is raids and we borrow some more money and we don't default, you can expect stocks to go straight up. that's the situation we are in. what i'm saying is you are going to see an awful lot of up and down with your money hour by hour. that's the way this week is going to be. bill: stuart varney. u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton is saying she is sure a debt deal with be reached. >> i'm confident congress will do the right thing and secure a deal on the debt ceiling. and work with president obama to take the steps necessary to improve our long-term fiscal outlook. bill: no coincidence she made those comments in hong kong. can both side make a deal? senator ron johnson, a ne
